Well it turns out that I do not get a wireless modem but a replacement for
my old one. So it is just the regular Motorola surfboard and that is fine
as I had just purchased a new router this year.

The Rogers store??? I wonder if the clerk was trying to bump me up to a
wireless without telling me that I did not have to take a wireless modem.

Cheers
John

Thanks for all of your replies.
